An Aberdeen lifeguard has been recognised for his hard work and commitment.
Dariusz Dzieniak was named employee of the year at Sport Aberdeen’s annual awards in recognition of employees who demonstrate commitment to creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives through sport.
The 42-year-old, who is based at the Beach Leisure Centre and has worked for the organisation for seven years, was nominated for his efforts in going the “extra mile with customers and colleagues”.
Nickie Scorgie, head of human resources at Sport Aberdeen said: “Dariusz is an asset to Sport Aberdeen and has shown how the small things really do add up.
“Employees of the charity are the lifeblood of the whole organisation and without them we would not be able to create so many opportunities in sport and physical activity across the city.”
Mr Dzieniak said he was very proud to receive the accolade.
He added: “Being surrounded by positive people in an exciting environment, mixing with people from across the city makes every work day different.”
